ELLEN
Ellen Show

What happens when you're an eight-year-old internet phenomenon who's already met her idol and even has her own "hype girl"? If you're Sophia Grace Brownlee -- the little Brit who rapped, ranted, and roared through Nicki Minaj's "Super Bass" along with cousin Rosie to 23 million YouTubers' delight -- you prove that you've got the startlingly good vocal chops to back it up.

The girls returned to the "Ellen Show" Tuesday and chattered on about meeting Minaj ("I couldn't get to sleep that night, we went out to celebrate in the restaurant and my dad drank champagne!") and becoming instant celebrities ("A couple -- a wife and a husband -- picked me and Rosie up and said 'Can we have a photo with them!'"). It'd all be hilarious and painfully cute -- especially when the video pans to five-year-old Rosie's spaced-out expressions -- if the brazen Sophia didn't have some serious talent. Why does Sophia have much energy? Why is she running around the stage area like she's about to spontaneously combust? Who knows! View the clip to hear her impressive a cappella performance of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep."
